School is here!

As usual, I am behind on my blog.  It is a flippin' miracle that I somehow managed to get  Hudson's 3 month update done.  OH well, I am just glad I have the handy dandy Blogger app on my iPhone.  Well, summer has ended and it has been the best summer yet. I have been on an "extra long maternity leave" all summer.  BEST. EVER. We have gone to splash pads, water parks, pools, parks, creeks, Florence, Franklin, and Birmingham.  I am sure there is more but those are just off the top of my head.  Addie Jane has learned to actually swim and Jack can swim like a fish under water, no problem.  Next summer will be amazing.  Hudson is amazing.  Sleeping great at night with his fat face and tiny legs.  He is about 26-26.5 inches long, I measured him last night.  He wears 3-6 month clothes now, but it is still hard to get them snapped, even with a clean diaper. The kids have been so much fun this summer but now it is time for school.  They have been to MDO (mother's day out) 2 days a week for 3 hours but that was over a year ago and now Addie Jane is in school everyday and Jack 2 days a week.  CRAZY.  I might have freaked out a little and I am usually not like that.  WEIRD.  But even weirder (that is not a word but whatever) is that neither one of them cried. Didn't even shed a tear.  I guess that was God's way of telling me that it is going to be OKAY.  I love making the kids' lunches and getting them all dressed up for school.  Not sure why this week the kids' have decided to sleep in but they are sleeping until 8:15-8:30.  Yes, we have to leave the house at 8:40.  That is quite a task.  I have many things I need to update on: Hudson's baby dedication, Grandparents from Texas visiting, family creek fun, splash adventure with the cousins, and even some projects around the house.  But, for now, here are some pictures from their first day at school.
Addie Jane actually started school on Tuesday and Jack on Wednesday but ya know I still wanted them to wear their adorable shirts (by my aunt Aunt Amy)

This was on meet you teacher day

 HAhaha. That face

I let them decide what they wanted for lunch their first day.  Addie Jane chose: vanilla yogurt, goldfish, grapes, pickles, and a honey and peanut butter sandwich. Oh and TWO juice boxes.  She said she gets really thirsty at school.
 Jack wanted a turkey and cheese sandwich,
carrots with "hummus dip", goldfish, and gummies.
He said he only needed one juice box. Ha.


I went shopping on Wednesday with only one kid.  AWESOME. My grandma was in town from Texas this week, so my grandma, my mom, and I went shoe shopping. Successfully I might add :)

 Oh yea, this kid took a nap.  A-maz-ing.

Happy 3 months Hudson

Ok little one, you are 3 months old. It's crazy. I feel like its gone by fast but then again I feel like we have had you forever. So right now you are still the best FC (favorite child is our joke). Sleeping now from about 10pm-6am. Perfect. You still take a bottle and nurse great ;). Although I have never seen it I know you can roll over. From your tummy to your back. You sleep on your tummy now in your crib (that we finally put up sorry about that) and every night when you wake up you are somehow on your back. Sneaky. You pretty much act like your paci is choking you now. Why cant any of my babies take a paci?? You prefer to suck your little hands and/or a blanket. You started laughing 2 days ago. It is adorable and I am sorry to say but you kinda sound like a girl. That's ok, still the sweetest sound I have ever heard. Daddy calls you chuckles. It is so sweet. Your brother and sister are pretty obsessed with you. I am not sure how I would manage without Addie Jane, she helps out all the time. Jack is great too, always wanting to hold you or make you smile. They both get so happy when they can make you smile it is like they won a prize! You are in 3-6 clothes now. No idea on weight or height but you are definitely growing like a weed. I love you little man thanks for letting mommy sleep at night :).

Lately in Pictures

I still need to blog about Hudson's baby dedication and it is almost time to update on Hudson again. I canNOT believe he is about to be 3 months old. Crazy.  But for now I just wanted to upload a few pictures I have taken, on what else, my iPhone.  My life. Everything has been busy in a great way over here. We are packing up now to go to Florence to spend a little time with my Aunts and cousins before we head back to school in a couple weeks.
 River fun
